Bhubaneswar club was reportedly founded in 1949. In 1950, the King of Khallikote became the first President of the Club.
Later, up to 1964 the heads of different Royal families of the State were becoming the President of this club. In 1964 former Chief Minister Biju Patnaik was the President of the club.
Since then the Club has been a Center of Culture and Sports and now it has turned out to be a multi-dimensional one with a new Team of management led by Mr.Tripathy.
